School and College Groups

Education and personal development are fundamental to our school & college tours and we ensure that these values are our primary focus throughout your trip. We provide an all-round, enjoyable experience for students that encourages learning life skills outside of the classroom. Our subject based tours offer any discerning student an educational yet memorable tour that will focus on specific subjects from languages, history, classics & art to politics, geography & science - and that’s before you even get started on the sightseeing trail! Whether you’re interested in a daytrip to bustling London or a week in fascinating China - our hugely experienced and dedicated team of staff will organise your tour to suit the needs of your group. We can tailor make these tours for your class, your drama or dance group, walking club, GAA club and many more. Contact one of our educational group specialists, here.
